Yorkville Christian hires JR Veliz as new head coach

Yorkville Christian has announced the hiring of JR Veliz as head coach of its baseball team. Veliz starred collegiately at Aurora University and has 17 years of high school and travel ball coaching experience. Veliz was previously the head coach at Newark since 2010. This will be the first year of baseball for Yorkville Christian High School. 

"I'm excited to join the Yorkville Christian family, and help build a world class baseball program for our students," said Veliz. "I have been impressed with how quickly the school community has built top notch programs for other sports and activities."

"We are thrilled to have someone with JR's experience, knowledge of the game, and ability to connect with players, on board to launch our baseball program," said Yorkville Christian Athletic Director Aaron Sovern. "This is something we have wanted for the past couple of years, but haven't been able to gain traction. With JR leading the charge, that will no doubt change."
